[ cheers and applause ] >> obama: for we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents with a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe in this country freedom is deserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our liveings anyone one of us could suffer a job loss or a home swept away in a terrible storm. these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves but to all prosperity. we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. [ cheers and applause ] >> obama: some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid the fires droughts and mo
the risks that make this country great. >> here's the "washington post" headline. obama lays out liberal vision. the "new york times" also called it a liberal vision for a second term. and politico writes obama is on offense for liberalism. let me bring in mother jones reporter andy kroll and politico's white house reporter, carrie budoff-brown. good morning. so how different was the tone in this speech? >> i mean, it was very different from the way he, you know, governed for the last four years or attempted to govern. he came at it from sort of a centrist, pragmatist approach, and it didn't work out so well for him a lot of the times. he faced a congress in republican hands for the last two years in the house that did not, you know, accept his agenda or pass it through the way he would like it. so i think he learned from this election, gave him the confidence to say the election delivered a mandate for my vision of government, my vision of politics, one that involves gay rights, immigration, climate change, an issue that he hasn't really spoken of since his attempts to deal with it in 2

? in 2004, who was leader of the party? nobody even heard of barack obama? what you have is a changing country. >> whenever a party loses a presidential election i understand that but what i think you are overlooking is countries change in 12 years. the minority vote is much more substantial. the younger americans are not engaged. they don't really pay attention. and they are going on whim and they are going on trend. the media is much more rabidly pro-left now than it was. three things have changed. and i agree whenever a party wins, they're going to take some momentum into the next year. i think it's changed america now. >> i think you are wrong. every time a party loses you get a book coming out saying the permanent republican majority. the permanent liberal majority. nothing in the country is permanent. what's important to remember is this republicans republicansn a beating. liberalism i think we would agree, which is all tax and all spend will not work he or she stein once said if something can't go on it won't go on it will stop. it all stopped in europe. you can only go on spend
>> across the country, president obama's proposed ban on new assault weapons and high capacity clips has struck a nerve among those who make the laws and those who enforce them. recently, lawmakers in texas, wyoming, missouri, and tennessee have rushed to introduce legislation to preempt the president's proposal. sheriffs in oregon and kentucky are refusing to enforce any new gun laws but the power to defy federal law are limited and the rhetoric is simply political posturing. >> if you drink a popular juice to prevent health disease or treat prostate cancer, the federal trade commission says you could waste your time ruling that there were deceptive ads over a juice that said they could reduce colds and low down the growth of prostate tumors and a law judge ruled similarly last year and the company is asking an appeal courts to reverse the fining. >> is there time? we have talked about house cold and frosty it has been, and the warm-up in the afternoon comes so late...after you have suffered in the morning, you get to freeze in the afternoon. >> that is how it works. coldest in the morn

troubling. a white house official told nbc news it's a terrible way to run the country. but the aide gave no indication president obama would veto a temporary extension if this is how congressional republicans want to govern, so be it. they already have an approval rating of, let's see, 14% from the american people. can they do better than that? maybe they just want to see how low it can go. the writing was on the wall yesterday when republican budget chairman paul ryan told members they need to be prepared for a debt ceiling increase. the attitudes from republican leaders are a lot different today. senator jon cornyn of texas wrote an op-ed said it may be necessary to partially shut down the government in order to secure the long-term fiscal well-being of the country. now cornyn tells the chronicle editorial board we will raise the debt ceiling. we are not going to default on our ded debt. two years ago, they were gloating over their debt ceiling hostage strategy. >> no president in the near future, maybe in the distant future, will be able to get the debt ceiling increased without a rei

politics derail the progressive course that this country is on. president obama looked out to the crowd on the national mall today and saw the full scope of america, young and old, rich and poor, black, white, hispanic, asian. he recognized the moment. he captured it. the mission he is charged with today is perhaps greater than his mission of four years ago. in 2009, he was of course there to lead us out of this economic tragedy that we were living in. in 2013, he needs to lead this country and make it the country that we all want to achieve. >> you and i as citizens had the power to set this country's course. you and i as citizens have the obligation to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideals. let us each of us now embrace with solemn duty and awesome joy what is our lasting birthright. with common effort and common purpose, with passion and dedication, let us answer the call of history and carry into an uncertain future the precious light of freedom. thank you, god bless you,
obama was applying the thinking about the unity of the country in the dignity of all men and women to the problems he faced today in saying there's a role for the union, if you will. don't forget, lincoln talked about the union, there's a role for the union, there's a role for all of us, together, to solve the problems that we all face. and that was the lincoln part of it. this came, and there's a big conflicting. we the people believe that enduring security do not require through perpetual war. who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends. and we must carry these lessons into this time as well. i think he's talking about iran. the one war that you face within the next few moments. >> you may very well be. you have to keep in mind taking those sworn enemies was after we defeated them in war. >> why did he say it tonight? >> i think it's a pivotal point. i think he is going to go back to what he said in the first inaugural and during the first campaign about how it's time for us to put down the sword and figure out how we can help everyone pick up the polish here. and i think

yesterday. >> obama: understand that our country cannot cubing seed when a shrinking few do very well and the many barely make it. the prosperity must rest upon the brood shoulders of a thriving middle class. america thrives when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty know she has the same chance to succeed as everybody else, because she is an american. she is free. and she is equal. not just in the eyes of god, but also in our own. >> stephanie: yaw hoo. >> liberal claptrap. kids are born to work in sweatshops. >> stephanie: i loved watching them watch the parade. and how -- how excited -- oh my god -- blanking -- sasha, the younger one was dancing at the -- she was like -- even the president was kind of -- i don't know who that was -- the dancing people. the dancing people. >> the hawaiian dancing people. >> stephanie: i probably would not make living as a parade commentator. >> stephanie: i don't mean to be rude, but some woman on cnn -- she asked wolf blitz

. on the other hand, with that kind of agenda, i absolutely believe we can change this country as president obama talked about in 2008. the change you can believe in, the change you work for. >> what has president obama done for labor in these last four years? >> well, i think he's tried to do quite a bit. i think in his heart he definitely supports, you know, working families. part of the outcome piece is what gets through the u.s. congress. so he definitely supported health care bill much more like speaker pelosi than what we ended up getting through the senate finance committee, onto the senate floor and eventually adopted a year later. he definitely supported workers' rights legislation. he definitely supported much more agressive moves to stop the foreclosures. he definitely supported climate change. so part of this is really -- you know, we would love to see more active white house support for these democracy initiatives so that the change that i'm sure he still believes in has some reality to it instead of just on the back bench somewhere. >> did he fight hard enough? i don't want to put y
